How to identify the version of SAS embedded EG

Hi Forum,

I am using SAS EG 4.3.

I just double click EG Icon; open EG;then get the SAS editor embedded in it; and then do the SAS work as if I would do in a SAS PC version.

I want to know what is the exact version of SAS I am working within  the EG 4.3.

Could anyone please let me know how to find it.

Thank you

Mirisage

Re: How to identify the version of SAS embedded EG


Hi:

  In your code window, display the GLOBAL macro variables for system information. %PUT will show output in the log. For example, in my log display, I have SAS 9.3 showing as the short version of SAS. If you look at the long value from &SYSVLONG4, you will see that I have release 1 from 06072011. I included the other information because if you ever need to open a track with Tech Support, they will want your Site #, and the CPU info, as well as the version info.

Program to submit:

%put ** my information;

%put short version: &sysver;

%put version: &sysvlong4;

%put site #: &syssite;

%put cpu: &sysscp &sysscpl;

Log display:

332  %put ** my information;

** my information

333  %put short version: &sysver;

short version: 9.3

334  %put version: &sysvlong4;

version: 9.03.01M0P06072011

335  %put site #: &syssite;

site #: 0070068130

336  %put cpu: &sysscp &sysscpl;

cpu: WIN X64_7PRO

Re: How to identify the version of SAS embedded EG

Hi RLC,

I submitted Cynthia's code.

I tried to run your code as well which is:

product_status;run;

However, it seems something is missing.

If you know what is missing please let me know.

Thanks

Needs the word proc in front to make it a valid SAS statement:

proc product_status;run;
